Man City Sign Porto's Mangala For £32m

FA Premier League champions, Manchester City, have announced the signing of Eliaquim Mangala from FC Porto who will become their sixth signing of the summer.

Mangala joined the Citizens for a fee around £32million and will wear the number 20 shirt at the Etihad stadium where he will re-join his former Porto teammate, Fernando, as well as French International colleagues, Gael Clichy, Samir Nasri and Bacary Sagna.

“I am really looking forward to the challenge, and I now need to settle in quickly and be ready for the season,” he told Manchester City’s official website.

“City is a top club in Europe. For me, it was an important step to leave Porto and join Manchester City in order to continue my progress. I want to win titles and I believe I can do this. I am ambitious and this is why I am here.

“I’m very happy to come to England because for me, the Premier League is the best league in the world.”

City’s manager, Manuel Pellegrini, also shared his thoughts on the new signing.

“Eliaquim is a player I believe will make an immediate impact in the Premier League, thanks to his physicality, his reading of the game and quality on the ball.”

“I think he will prove to be a great signing for us.”

Mangala appeared 92 times for FC Porto, winning two Portuguese Championships in the process and he has also won three caps for France.
